Clinton Morrison says he the challenge of being first team coach at Mickleover Sports is something he is looking forward to.
The Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division club announced that player-manager John McGrath had appointed Morrison into his new role for the 2017/18 season last month.
Morrison said he is pleased to have been offered and taken the new position.
“I am very happy because it’s going to be a good challenge for me. I am looking forward to helping the team and the rest of the management staff to utilise my experience to hopefully guide Mickleover Sports to a successful season.”
Morrison will use his experience to help the other strikers. He also has the knowledge for the role as he has a UEFA B license. The former Republic of Ireland striker admitted he may one day go into management.
Last season he joined Mickleover and admitted he wants to improve as he knows how tough the league is.
“It was enjoyable but I needed to be fitter. Hopefully this year I feel fitter and more prepared for the season.
I know that the standard is good as some players are going into the football league.”
